well, we're going to be seeing some more of this stuff, some snow. this is in the poconos, camelback. and they're probably going to get even more tomorrow, late afternoon and night, than what they got this morning. perhaps a few inches. but the rest of us are going to be like where we were this morning, too warm for snow. rain and temperatures are in the 40s, except for parts of interior south jersey which dropped into the 30s with the clear skies. it's 42 in newark, delaware. 41 in greenville and claymont. 46 in reedy point. 42 in georgetown. 41 in millsboro. these temperatures dropping into the 30s. just because of the clear skies. but as the clouds come in later on tonight, temperatures may actually go up a bit. and they certainly will go up tomorrow as this rain moves in. it's a lot of warm air down here along with the rain. and coming up from that direction, we're pretty sure
that that's what's going to happen. it's also not going to be happening during the night tonight or for the morning rush tomorrow. you're fine. temperatures near the freezing mark. a little cooler to the north and warmer to the south. by lunchtime, we've got some rain moving into delaware. and in extreme south jersey. and by early afternoon, maybe throughout the area, and certainly for the afternoon rush, it looks like widespread rain, mostly on the light to moderate side. that area of snow in the poconos, the darker colors there, indicate it could be a little bit on the moderate to heavy side for a little while. but then the temperatures even there start to go up above freezing. and we get some of the heaviest rain tomorrow evening. not so much during the afternoon. and we continue with the threat of rain at night. and we don't really start drying out until wednesday morning and clearing out wednesday afternoon. then we start looking for the
arctic air to the west. let's go through the night tonight in our various neighborhoods and watch what happens here. as we go into the morning, nobody is showing any kind of rain. a.m. rush is dry everywhere. but as we go to early afternoon, wilmington is getting some rain there. and atlantic city. this is why we do neighborhood forecasts. it comes to different neighborhoods at different times. then heavier rain like the three-drop thing here in atlantic city, reading and trenton at the afternoon rush. but later rain in allentown and quakertown. again, that's what it's all about. the arctic air starts coming into the country today, comes all the way over into our area on friday. now, watch what happens on thursday. the temperatures start dropping. and in the lehigh valley we could see a mix of snow and rain by thursday.
and for the weekend, it's cold. some snow flurries and p.a. suburbs and lehigh valley, that's a high of only 34. and we don't really warm up a whole lot through the rest of the weekend either. i'm john clark. what has the eagles' owner told doug pederson about the state of the eagles? we'll hear from the coach.
hello, peco. so i'm calling to see if you can help me save on my energy bill. we can do that. great. i live in a post-war, pre-war, mid-century home and the heating system is a turbine, hvac, reverse hydrogen, boiler pipe unit. well sir, i can see that you live in a twin and based on the size, your usage has been spiking. ♪ that's exactly what i thought. if you're not an expert, peco can help. we have lots of ways to help you save energy and money. peco. the future is on.
csn. eagles coach doug pederson changed his tune from yesterday. after the loss, he said his eagles gave full effort in cincinnati. today he said not everybody gave their best effort. it was the eagles' worst performance of the season, dominated by the bengals. doug pederson says yes, he has been given assurances he will coach the team next year. >> for sure. yeah. it's been 100% support on everything. and, you know, i meet with jeffrey and howie every week, and we discuss a lot of things and go over a lot of things. every week it's very positive. and, you know, i just don't think personally you can base a season on a couple of -- on one season, you can base a guy's career on one season. you have to give it time to
develop. >> the eagles expect jordan matthews and ryan matthews back sunday against the redskins. beckham should also be ready to go. the flyers announced matt reed will be out a month after last night when he pulled a muscle. steve mason was named the first star of the week in the nhl and the flyers have won five in a row. sixers center will play at home tonight. the six verse a back to back. he would like to play in front of sixers fans and rest on the road to memphis tomorrow. >> we got denver at home. i know there are fans who want to see the teams. that was a factor. >> philly is a pro sports town but it's the college teams that
are most successful right now. penn state won football and villanova is the number one college basketball team in the country again, number one in ap and coaches' polls. they were number one last season. they're rolling at 8-0. now let's take you to the chilean fourth division soccer league. clears the ball upfield, kicks it right out of the air from across midfield. 65 yard volley right there. somebody could head it in from that distance, that would be even more impressive. i'm john clark. we'll be right back.
we've got some rain moving in tomorrow but not for the morning rush, for the afternoon rush. we're dry wednesday. the arctic blast comes in friday. we've got wind on top of that cold. it's going to be a very cold weekend. then things moderate a little bit next week. so it's not going to stay freezing cold for all ten days. >> and a dry morning rush.
